Facebook Members - Please vote for my picture

To all of you who are Facebook members. I have entered a photo contest on the Zermatt Matterhorn page.

To be in the running for the prize, I have to get most votes. My entry is called 'Matterhorn Rise' and is on the first page of the entries.

I hope that you will vote for me.

Thanks

I understand that people may not want to allow Facebook to access data. I am very cautious with applications. This one is through a reputable organisation so should be safe.

Yeah, I hate those apps. I voted, but then removed the app, that shouldn't affect the count.

Re: Facebook Members - Please vote for my picture

Rob, your entry has been pushed down to page 4 now, probably by more recent entries. I voted but, like fatmanfilms Rob, I am not going to allow Contests to send me spam mails:

Access my basic information – This is the default permission that all apps on Facebook require

Send me email – We want to be able to communicate important information (WHY?) to you regarding your entry. You can opt out at any time if you do not wish to receive our notification emails.

Access my profile information – We need to know your work history, education history and current city to provide you with a streamlined user experience- (NO THANK YOU!)

Re: Facebook Members - Please vote for my picture

Zermatt Tourism have just assured me that anyone voting will not get sent spam as a result. If you delete the app. after voting, the vote will still count and your details will not be recorded.

Thanks for those who have voted so far

Re: Facebook Members - Please vote for my picture

There are still a few days left to vote. As I mentioned earlier, you will need to 'Like' the Zermatt Matterhorn app. to vote, but can delete it straight after if you wish. They have assured me that you will not get any spam etc. through this.

Thanks

Thanks.

The winner was decided by the most Facebook votes, not necessarily the best photo

Another reason why Facebook is a bad idea. Especially when mixed with art.

Re: Facebook Members - Please vote for my picture

The top 6 Photos are cuurntly featured on the Zermatt Matterhorn website.

I just missed out, coming eighth out of 185 entries. I am pleased with that for a first attempt, especially as I didn't take the picture with a competition in mind.
